Have just read the Lonely Planet Guide to Bonaire ..... seems the author is not complementary about the facilities for camera gear on boats/dive shops in Bonaire...rinse buckets small, inadequate, mixed with general dive gear? My husband won't be happy !
Is this the case?
We are staying @ Harbour Village, and diving with their operation 'Great Adventures' ....

Thanks !

This is definitely not the case, we just returned on June 30th. There is Camera rinse only on the dock and camera rinse only on both boats. The staff were very quick to gently but firmly reprimand the guy with attitude rinsing his mask in the camera rinse tank on one of our boat dives; they were on it before I even started to open my mouth. It wasn’t always this way, we used to carry our own rinse bags, now they only get wet when we shore dive away from HV.

Thank you (again) ; i notice the book was written a few years ago, it sounds as if things have improved = good!
